Combined Breast Lift and Augmentation for Dramatic Results
As we age, breast tissue can begin to fall. With a breast lift, Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel and Dr. Louis Boileau can restore your youthful figure. But, like many women, you may also have lost volume in your breasts. A breast lift with augmentation at our Halifax, Nova Scotia, practice can achieve more comprehensive results than a lift procedure only. The combined procedures will improve your appearance and self-confidence, and you may look and feel years younger. Contact The Landings Surgical Centre to learn more about a breast lift with augmentation.
Is a Breast Lift with Augmentation Right for You?
If you are struggling with both lost volume and sagging breasts, you may be a good candidate for a lift with augmentation. The two procedures can achieve a moderate lift with increased volume, particularly at the top of your breasts. However, if you have a large amount of damaged or excess skin, especially after massive weight loss, these combined procedures may not be an appropriate solution.
To qualify for any form of cosmetic surgery, you should be in good overall health and have a strong immune system. If you have an autoimmune disorder or some other condition that could compromise healing, this will affect your candidacy. For optimal results, you should also possess good skin elasticity.
Your Surgery: What to Expect
We will typically perform a breast lift with augmentation while you are under general anesthesia. We will create an incision pattern in accord with your cosmetic goals and body type. We can complete several different techniques and will carefully chose the right one for you. Through the incisions, we will remove stretched and drooping skin. Often, we will also perform liposuction to eliminate excess or displaced fat deposits.
A breast lift combined with augmentation can achieve dramatic results. Since the procedure can address both sagging skin and lost volume, you could look years younger and pounds slimmer.
When all unwanted tissues have been removed, we will then place your breast implants. We offer several options including saline, silicone, and silicone gel implants. Each of these options are available in different shapes and sizes. Prior to your surgery, Dr. Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Boileau will help you select the implants that will achieve your desired results.
After a breast lift with augmentation, you will experience some swelling and discomfort. These side effects can typically be managed with compression garments and mild pain medications. You will need to rest and avoid strenuous physical activity for about two weeks after your surgery. Following your initial recovery period, however, you will be able to begin enjoying your new, improved figure.
A breast lift combined with augmentation can achieve dramatic results. Since the procedure can address both sagging skin and lost volume, you could look years younger and pounds slimmer. These results can last decades, and it is safe to undergo revisions, if needed.
Thanks to our surgeons’ experience, your procedure will involve negligible risks. Plus, we use precise and careful techniques, so scarring will be minimal. You can usually hide any visible marks under clothing or swimwear.
